Thappad actor Pavail Gulati on slapping Taapsee Pannu seven times: I was very nervous

Thappad is an upcoming drama film of Taapsee Pannu in which the actress will fight against the patriarchy. Just like her other films, this film of Taapsee comes with a strong message. In the trailer, we saw Taapsee playing the role of a married woman who tackles domestic violence in her own way. Not giving up on herself, she fights her case till the end. However, the actor who plays Taapsee Pannu's husband has a lot to say about his role in the film.
 
In an interview with TOI, Pavail talked about the scene in which he had to slap Taapsee seven times in order to get a perfect shot. He said I was very nervous before the scene as slapping someone isn’t the nicest thing in the world. There were too many people on the set as it was supposed to be a party scene. Everyone was trying to calm me down but I was still nervous about it. While you are already under the pressure of pulling off that scene, then are some technical aspects involved where the slap has to be from the correct angle and have the correct impact. All this took me six takes. And then Taapsee came up to me and said, ‘Just don’t think about anything. Ghumake laga de’! Finally, we got the seventh one right."
